I would just like to say to anyone out there who is looking to visit Sydney that Hotel 1888 was wonderful! First of all the front desk staff (Jess in particular) were so upbeat and friendly and helpful. We had arrived from the states at 7:00am needless to stay tired and feeling grungy after over 20+ hours of traveling. Our room wasn't quite ready but Jess graciously offered us an area where we could shower and refresh before we hit the streets to explore.
The location of the hotel was perfect as well, only a few blocks from the Harbor walk and local restaurants.
The room was lovely, clean and very modern in style.
I'd give this hotel a 10+ !!

- Steeped in history, Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour was tastefully restored and thoughtfully designed with shutter-happy Instagrammers in mind, providing photo opportunities around every corner so captivating that you really need #nofilter. Originally constructed as a wool store and factory in 1888, the building still bears the original signage of its birth year, visible from the busy streets of Pyrmont. A heritage listed 90-bedroom boutique hotel as well as bar & event space, Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour brings together Sydney's old world charm and contemporary design with Ovolo's service culture to offer a truly mind-blowing experience in modern hospitality. The collection of rooms each boast 3-metre high ceilings, exposed brick walls, original ironbark beams, concealed uplighting, huge sound proofed period windows, recycled timber work stations, bespoke furniture and feature walls in each room flaunting the colourfully commissioned pieces by celebrated local artist, Jasper Knight. Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour is located in Sydney's inner-city suburb of Pyrmont, neighbouring Darling Harbour, Sydney CBD, Sydney Fish Market, Sydney Exhibition & Convention Centre, The Star, a wide selection of must-go bars & dining options, and the very best boutique shopping this side of the Southern Hemisphere. But really, who needs to go anywhere when your room rate already includes everything?
